A cert is a blob that holds a description in directed graph pictorial 
form i.e., it is a descriptor resource. That's similar of a foaf profile 
document. They are both accessible via addresses (URLs).

The subjects of said blob and a foaf document can be in an equivalence 
relation. These subjects are identifiable via URI based Names.

The URI in SAN is still resolving to a descriptor resource, your goal 
isn't lost.
